Local Veteran Claims V.A. Falsified Medical Report

CORPUS CHRISTI - The scandal surrounding the V.A. is getting uglier, and now involves a clinic here in Corpus Christi.

A local veteran is said that the V.A. clinic recorded a detailed doctor's visit on his file that actually never happened.

"The lady says, 'Mr. Lucich, why do you want to see another doctor? You just saw one on July the 1st.'" said veteran Vernon Lucich. "I said, 'no ma'am, not me.'"

Lucich said when he questioned the doctors' visit on his record, the clerk at the V.A.'s office told him it must have been a mistake.

But, he's not buying it, saying it doesn't look like just any clerical error. He said the report is extremely detailed and completely fabricated.

"They're still falsifying records," said Lucich. "And I don't care if they don't like it, I'm going to speak up."

The V.A. said that they are looking into the case.
